Join Moose Hill Camp’s adventure team for a fun week of exploring amazing places, enjoying ocean beaches, visiting with scientists, and discovering how you can make a difference by becoming a champion for ecosystems and wildlife!
During the Eco-Champions session, campers ages 10 to 14 will:
- learn how sick, orphaned, and injured wildlife are cared for and rehabilitated at the New England Wildlife Center in Weymouth. This informal hands-on science education organization uses veterinary medical care and wildlife rehabilitation as a way to educate students about the care of captive wildlife and exotic pets – raccoons, snakes, turtles, birds of prey – oh my!
- see how injured marine mammals are cared for at the National Marine Life Center in Buzzards Bay. Stranded marine mammals and sea turtles are rehabilitated and released in order to advance science education in marine wildlife health and conservation.
- visit Daniel Webster wildlife sanctuary in Marshfield and Allens Pond wildlife sanctuary in Westport. Set out along their trails with a conservation scientist and learn how they are researching and protecting endangered and threatened species of birds such as Eastern Meadowlarks, American Kestrels, Saltmarsh Sparrows, and Piping Plovers.
- swim at various beaches; and have loads of fun along the way!
We can’t wait for the adventure to begin!
